“Everyone's been friendly and approachable from day one. I can see how their commitment is helping the company grow and everyone helps each other when they can.”
Gemma
Software Developer

I joined as a graduate straight out of University of Ulster in Coleraine – my hometown! The recruitment process wasn’t stressful at all as I had plenty of time to do the technical test which included three questions on logic, problem-solving and coding. The interview went well because shortly after I was told I was successful. Almost from the beginning I went straight into developing a training product based around a real live insurance product. So I’ve quickly grown my problem-solving skills, been introduced to new programming languages and increased in confidence.

Everyone’s been friendly and approachable from day one. I can see how their commitment is helping the company to grow and everyone is willing to share their knowledge. I get to work independently and as part of each project team, which means every day is different and there are new challenges to overcome. It’s really rewarding to see my development work get signed off and go live.

Right now, I’m being sponsored to do the Chartered Insurance Institute Certificate exams and looking forward to learning much more. There are many ways to further learning here, both in the office and independently.

The balance is good too – because we work flexibly, if I’m in before 9, I can get away before 5. It makes all the difference to my day!

“People here have been welcoming and supportive from the moment I joined. Two years later and that hasn't changed.”
James
Software Developer

People here have been welcoming and supportive from the moment I joined. Two years later and that hasn't changed.

Some staff have their own areas of expertise, there’s always someone you can ask questions to and everyone is willing to share their knowledge.

There are plenty of opportunities available for career development and personal growth. I’m currently working towards the Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII) from the Chartered Insurance Institute and I’ve also completed a First Aid Certificate.

I live nearby so I can walk, cycle or drive to work. There’s a car park at the office, so I don't need to worry about finding a space. The hours are flexible, so I can arrive early and leave early if I want. Sometimes I’ll go home for lunch, but we have good kitchen facilities with a panini press and smoothie maker or you can get your lunch from the cafe and shops nearby.

The team is really social – we play five-a-side regularly, there's also occasional cinema trips and dinners. We have Payday Pizza and Payday Drinks on the last Friday of every month.

There’s a charity draw with proceeds split between the winner and the Northern Ireland Hospice.
